During this challenging period, Porth Cymorth Cynnar has established a virtual platform to ensure that we are able to keep in touch with vulnerable residents across Ceredigion.
Due to the restrictions introduced to safeguard our communities against COVID-19, many residents will not be able to access their usual provision or support such as parent groups or GP Referral Exercise Classes.
Instead, we are ensuring that all residents whom are known to our services, are kept in touch with, through regular welfare calls, should they wish. Around 2000 residents from young people to families to carers, who may require or benefit from regular contact whilst their service is not operating in its usual form, will receive communication from our staff.
Staff can provide support, advice and guidance and are also working closely with the third sector to gather and collate importation about local support groups, food deliveries and medication collection, to signpost residents.
Porth Cymorth Cynnar are regularly updating resource lists which are available on the Ceredigion County Council website here: http://www.ceredigion.gov.uk/coronavirus
Additionally, Porth Cymorth Cynnar are working with Primary and Secondary schools across the county to provide support for keeping in touch with families.
